Oh Lord, open up our hearts and minds to know You even better than before. Lead and guide our lives with Your light shining ahead of us. Teach us more about You and Your will for our lives. Give us wisdom, God. We want to know You and become Your children on earth. Our faith in You is what sustains us through life’s trials. We know that life is not easy, but it is so much easier to deal with when You are in our lives. There have been times that I have drifted off course and they were also the hardest times in my life. It was so dark and dreary without You. I may have had pleasure while in the lusts of the flesh, but it never lasted. There was always guilt and shame that accompanied this wicked lifestyle. But then You heard my cries and brought life into my soul once again. Thank You, God. I believe in You. Even the holy trinity, which I honor and respect. This is in reverence to Your Holy Name. I love You, Lord. Amen.
